The Historic Need:
There are more displaced people in the world today than at any other time in the history of our planet. The primary reason we chose Berlin is because this is one place where refugees from a variety of countries desire to be. Therefore, this is where we want to be. The numbers are staggering. From 2015, Berlin has been flooded with desperate people fleeing atrocities that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. War, famine, violence, and persecution are the narratives told by countless refugees who are simply seeking safety in and around Berlin. This location is also a great hub to be involved in work around Europe.
Our work here revolves around meeting refugees, becoming friends, and finding the best way to serve them as they navigate the immigration process. We show them the love of God that compels us to serve, show them understanding, do not judge them, help them with emergency funds or necessities, we house some, pay immigration attourney fees for some, purchase monthly public transport tickets for some, and we advocate on their behalf in a wide variety of ways. We seek to love and serve them just as Jesus has taught, and by way of his example.
